How do you express your geekery? Do you own obvious paraphernalia like a Horde-symbol bumper sticker, in-joke tshirts like the dps/ups pun, or less obviously related items like a gift from a guildie? Rather than physical indicators, do you mix nerd lingo into your everyday speech or talk/post about geekdom in non-nerd spaces? How do you advertise your nerd tendencies? Does it help you to attract new nerd friends?

Poasted!

Sounds like one I will have to put some thought into! Is this for the week of 1/22 - 1/28?

I had to link to prior ST posts (War-Crafts and Music playlist), which some folks might have missed at the time.

With apologies to Akabeko, I totally derailed myself while brainstorming for this and went in a bit of a different direction. Thanks for the fantastic topic suggestion. :D

I love this idea, but unfortunately I have nothing to show off I did have a key chain before but i dont know what happen to it. my geekeness shows that I collected all the time cards and all the wow magazine. after the move its one of the boxes so its kinda hard to rearrange again but someday I will share this pics to you. Great post everyone! =)
